On Christmas Day I Saw...............

#1
Anything interesting or unusual?

I took the hounds for a pre-Christmas Day lunch walk and saw a 4 m Burmese Python in the catchwater gulley next to me. (We live in the New Territories, Hong Kong, about a mile from the old Perowne Barracks).

I was surprised, as it was only 17-18C. It was pretty torpid - in contrast to me, who moved pretty quickly back the way I came.

my clampit relatives turn up, eat, drink, annoy and leave. their main topic of conversation was the current stories on corrie and enders...i went to DEFCON 5 when they talked (loudly) throughout Madge's Dit, and had to count to ten when they made the observation that we shouldn't be in the stan...blah...although i did get several good gusset shots of a younger female (non blood) relative...very festively attired too!

My daughter, rabid with frenzy due to her (admittedly rather severe) chicken pox, and high as a kite on chocolate and other assorted fizzies. One can of Relentless would no doubt have finished it off as a spectacle to rival Guy Fawkes. :D

...my dads elderly next door neighbour nearly have a heart attack, when my 19yo sister decided to run round the house showing off in her designer underwear. He popped his head in the front door to wish us all the best and his eyes nearly popped out of his head.

A UFO...which apparently no longer stands for 'Unidentified Flying Object' but instead 'space ship full of aliens'..... God bless the media :roll:

I'm told it was a Chinese Lantern, which I still find odd as it's not a Chinese festival unless I've missed something?

If they are paper lanterns that fly in the sky and eventually burst into flames I think they are Thai (at least that's where I've seen them).

They are used at festivals, but you cna also buy them on the beach in Phuket.
